BMI Acoustic Lounge Gets Latin Flavor

Posted in News on November 20, 2005
Members of Latin Grammy-nominated funk band Kinky stopped by a recent edition of BMI's monthly Acoustic Lounge series to catch a performance by emerging BMI Latin singer/songwriter Crisantes.

Shown at the BMI Acoustic Lounge are Kinky's Gil Cerezo, BMI's Delia Orjuela, performer Crisantes, Kinky's Cesar Pliego, producer Carlos Murguia and musician Greko

Raised between Nogales, Arizona, and Culiacán, Sinaloa (Mexico), Crisantes performs an Anglo form of pop-rock, composes songs in both English and Spanish, plays a multitude of instruments, and has just released his self-titled debut. The Mexican/American artist was also featured on the fifth edition of BMI's new "See It Hear First" podcast series.

Kinky, the Monterrey, Mexico quintet that caused quite a stir among music industry insiders and critics with its 2002 self-titled debut, was in town on a stop during their current tour.

The BMI Acoustic Lounge series is held the first Monday of every month at Hollywood landmark Genghis Cohen and is another chapter in BMI's long standing commitment to present the finest talent in the singer/songwriter genre. The free show features acoustic performances in an intimate setting as well as networking opportunities with other songwriters and BMI representatives.
